Intussen, Ginni Thomas, a longtime conservative activist, has been accused of imploring former President Donald Trump’s White House chief of staff to act to overturn the 2020 election results – putting a spotlight on how justices decide whether to recuse themselves from certain cases.

While the Supreme Court did not step into any election cases brought by Trump and other Republicans, Justice Thomas took part in the consideration of whether to hear those cases. He was also the lone vote to keep House lawmakers investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot from obtaining contested White House documents.
